Juniper Networks Inc.'s (>> Juniper Networks, Inc.) fourth-quarter earnings edged down 0.5% as stronger router sales helped balance weaker spending on switches by some big enterprise customers.

KLA-Tencor Corp.'s (>> KLA-Tencor Corporation) fiscal second-quarter earnings fell 3.8% as rising costs outpaced higher revenue at the semiconductor-equipment company.

Sonic Corp. (>> Sonic Corporation) said its President Scott McLain will resign, effective March 31, and his title will be assumed by Chairman and Chief Executive Cliff Hudson.

Starbucks Corp.'s (>> Starbucks Corporation) profit jumped 13% in the latest quarter, propelled by higher sales in the U.S. and even China, where others have stumbled lately.

Moody's Investors Service has boosted the outlook for Valmont Industries Inc. (>> Valmont Industries, Inc.) to positive from stable, citing improved profitability over the past year and expectations of moderate global growth.
